It is one of the most representative products of traditional Madeiran confectionery. When the island of Madeira was discovered, the current city of Funchal was abundant in fennel, which was even at the origin of the name of the city. It was through this abundance that this candy so characteristic of our island appeared over time.
Fábrica Santo António’s Traditional Sweets are produced 100% by hand, from rolling to cutting, hence their always irregular shape.
The best known is the Fennel candy, but over time the Eucalyptus candy appeared, and in the last decade the company launched flavors such as Ginger, Passion Fruit, Sugar Cane Honey, Bee Honey, Tangerine, Mango or Banana.
